Bolivian Butterfly

Bolivian Butterfly

Native to the Amazon River basin in South America, the Bolivian Butterfly is certainly undervalued. It will adapt to a number of water conditions, will eat most foods, won’t grow too big and is beautifully coloured.

They are relatively peaceful and shy, and are best kept in groups of four to six in a community tank.
